Clearfield Boy’s Cross Country Team Earns Narrow Victory in Final Home Meet

CLEARFIELD — The Clearfield boy’s cross country team edged visting Tyrone  27-28 on Monday to finish the dual meet portion of their schedule.

The girl’s race was a non-scoring event due to not enough runners. The girl’s finish their record at 2-5.

Head coach John Jacob was rightfully proud of his team and gave the ‘play the play’, “It was nice to see the boys pull out a win for their last home meet of the season. Adam (Jury) and Alec (Coble) battled Tyrone’s top runner through all 5,000 meters.  Coming into the last 200m it was still a 3-way battle with Tyrone’s Devon Wiser out sprinting Adam and Alec for the win.  This was probably the best race I have seen on the boy’s side in five years!  It was a total team effort to pull out a one point win. Jesse Neyman pulled ahead of Tyrone’s second place boy to gain a valuable place. Also Caleb Bass fought his way all the way up to Tyrone’s fifth place boy putting the team in a good position. Then when Vince Kovach crossed the line to take the last spot it sealed the victory for the Bison.”

Boy’s race results:

1. Devon Wiser T 19:02

2. Adam Jury C 19:04

3. Alec Coble C 19:08

4. Jesse Neyman C 19:27
